    I worked at Bank of America full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    You know your job and expectations. Very keen on policy and procedures and ethics.

    Cons

    Took hit with mortgage industry crisis that was felt all around. But no cons specific to my job except that it was impacted by mortgage crisis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to skip level meetings, the bigger the skip the better.

    Pros

    Awesome Colleague, Management has been very supportive,

    Cons

    Lay offs is a major thing .. While the term "right sizing" is loosely used, job security is one Con. Pay can be better

    I have been working at Bank of America full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health insurance is awesome, promoted 4 times in 3 years, bonuses available, many different career directions available when you find out what you like, adoption/tuition/partial child care reimbursement, 3 month maternity/paternity leave, and plenty of other great benefits!

    Cons

    sales goals have gotten higher over the years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is becoming progressively harder to get a decent bonus in any level of consumer banking. Employees begin to slack off, because they don't see a benefit in working twice as hard for a small bonus.

    Pros

    Not stressful, good about making sure you are located near your banking center, solid floor of pay for a teller

    Cons

    Environment depends on the people around you; you talk with them extensively and if your Assistant Manager/Manager is relaxed then you're okay. If they aren't, its a bad day. Half hour lunches suck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make full-timers work Saturdays, its only a half day of work anyhow.
